2 of 2 thought this review was well written

Originating from Milan, Maurizio Bianchi was an Italian pioneer of noise music. Whilst Boyd Rice is often credited as the first full-time noise musician with his project NON, Bianchi had been recording similarly dissonant frequencies under the moniker M.B. for about roughly the same length time, progressing in his later career more into the fields of electronic and ambient music. He has dozens of obscure cassettes and LP releases, a prolific artist who seems to release 4 or 5 new albums a year even well into his 60's.

Mectpyo Blut is his very first tape release as M.B./Maurizio Bianchi, two tracks which both clock in at just over 44 minutes in length. Whilst this is incredibly self-indulgent as it is, Bianchi's brand of swirling, noisy dirge is enough to ward off even the most casual of music listener as for those unaccustomed to noise music the very mention of the genre tends to incite hostile reactions. Still, for those willing to endure a listening session with a release such as Mectpyo Blut you will find certain patterns still manage to form, a somewhat hypnotic, lo-fi wall of sound designed so one can get lost in it. There are certain progressions which are made, frequencies shift and change throughout, and I have to say Mectpyo Blut does it a lot more convincingly than most.

Maurizio Bianchi is not a cup of tea we can all enjoy, sadly. Still, add a bit of ginger and maybe a grain of salt and Mectpyo Blut is good for your throat. Still, like all of M.B's albums just don't swallow it all at once.

its technically one of the first dedicated noise recordings

and we can't objectively judge it as terrible anyway because he manually drilled 4 or more holes in the original vinyl pressings for "multi-axial rotation, listener modified playback", it was intended to be played back at any speed how can mp3's found on a blog really get that across technically we can't judge it (yes I did review it a couple of years back shut up)
